Sacramento River Cats

River Cats back home but lose again

Returning home didn’t help the River Cats on Saturday night.

The Tacoma Rainiers played small ball to hand Sacramento its sixth straight loss, 6-1 at Raley Field.

Tacoma collected 12 hits (10 singles and two doubles), five walks and four stolen bases. The Rainiers scored on a double steal in the sixth inning to lead 4-1.

The River Cats, who have been outscored 48-16 during their skid, tallied in the fifth inning on consecutive doubles by Skyler Stromsmoe and Ronny Cedeno.

Cats starter Braulio Lara (0-3) took the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits in 52/3 innings.

Cedeno went 3 for 5. Sacramento cleanup hitter Adam Duvall was 0 for 4, dropping his average to .400.
